Technical report; 1972

The temporal and spacial variation in one-way transmission loss as experienced in the ocean due to short term temporal and small scale spacial variation in the acoustic environment is examined. This variation is characterized as a function of the transmission frequency, transmission range, source and receiver depths, predominant thermal structure and geographical locality. The results obtained clearly indicate that variability in transmission loss is indeed dependent upon the relative position of source and receiver within the acoustic medium as well as the nature of the acoustic medium. Suggestions are made as to the nature of the influences which control this variation. (Author)
